Here's a funny Retro baked good that never quite got off the ground. Still, this Ad from 1978 for Cocoa-Raisin cake-muffins "cuffins' shows that Hershey's and Sun-Maid Raisins were trying to establish something new! "A little bit cupcake. A little bit muffin. A whole lot delicious."

"CUFFINS are a great new way to please your family. These delicious single-serving cakes can be baked in any standard cupcake or muffin pan. Or you can be creatoive and bake them in the special Bundt pan offered below. They're perfect for breakfast, snack, in lunch boxes and for dessert"
